I work from home in Sheffield as an integrative therapist, this means that I have an understanding of different ways of working and can draw on these to respond to each individual's needs. I offer counselling by telephone and zoom as well as face-to-face.
My focus is on creating trust through listening with empathy and responding with compassion, in the belief that you have the solutions to your problems, and having someone alongside you in the process of discovering this can bring the change you need. I offer short term or longer term counselling to suit your needs and welcome people from diverse cultural backgrounds and orientations.
I bring a lively, hands on, problem solving approach to my client work and have seen very positive outcomes, with clients growing in confidence and self-esteem as they seek to resolve long term problems or deal with life and relationship crises.
Training, qualifications & experience
I gained a Diploma in Counselling in 2017 and have experience of working with young people, students and adults with a range of needs including anxiety, panic attacks, low mood, depression, eating disorders, LGBT+, childhood trauma and abuse, relationship difficulties, intimacy issues, bereavement, loss, autism, ADHD, substance misuse and work related stress.
I am a qualified EMDR trauma therapist; Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprogramming can be a highly effective intervention to unlock the mind's healing and can bring rapid and lasting change to mood and reduce anxiety.
I also draw on extensive experience in health and social care from working with children and families in the justice system as a qualified professional, and commissioning health and wellbeing services for children in public health. This gives me a broad range of experience of health and social needs and a good understanding of local services .
